Tallk about the shock of your life!! I went to the doctor yesterday to confirm the gender of Baby Sailor.
We went at 18 weeks for the anatomy scan but because the baby was measuring at 17 weeks they only ‘guessed’ it was a boy (80% sure) because the little lump between the legs looked like a scrotum sack. We never saw a penis.
So, yesterday I was 23 weeks. Baby is measuring 23 weeks and 3 days! They do a check-up on the baby and then check the genitals. The nurse says to us “Um, this is a girl!” She showed us the labia of the vagina.
My husband and I both screamed WHAT?!!! I almost fell over LOL.
We have a closet full of boy clothing, cute blue booties, and we’ve planned a baby boy baby shower. LOL it’s a darling daughter!!
We are going to keep everything in case her brother decideds to make an appearance in the future!

My friend thought she was having a girl because that is what they told her. Imagine her surprise when a baby boy popped out! All those clothes got packed right on up for later.

@LuvMySailor: OMG that is too funny! I’ve heard of it happening but usually the ultrasounds are earlier than the 17/18 week mark! you can always just buy a bunch of cute flowery headbands lol. Congratulations on your daughter!!

lol how funny! we did not have this happen. my son wasn’t confusing at all. On the day of my ultrasound to find out his gender I as so nervous they woudl either not be able to tell or that they would get it wrong! not the case. My son did a full spread eagle for the technician lol. there was no doubt he was a boy 🙂
How exciting either way!
